Welcome to the blog for the Oberlin College Geomorphology Research Group. We are a diverse team of students working with Amanda Henck Schmidt on geomorphology questions. This blog is an archive of our thoughts about our research, field work travel notes, and student research projects. Amanda's home page is here.

Update from Adrian!

Hello from Pudong airport in Shanghai! Amanda, Veronica and I (Adrian) are waiting for our flight to Kunming. I'm searching for a toothbrush and toothpaste to buy last minute and preparing for a couple weeks of field work. In addition to collecting samples for our study of erosion, we will also be collecting bulk sediment in four grain sizes at headwater, intermediate, and outlet locations. Part of my research on the grain size dependancies of the radionuclides will involve analyzing the sediment we collect in our Germanium detector "Harbin" back at Oberlin. When we get back to the states, I will be going to UVM in Burlington to prepare the samples for analysis of Beryllium-10. It will be a big change going from the tropics to snowy Vermont!
